Windows 7: Pc-1 on new win install in infinite loop w/ format done> how access

Oboy! Never knew that. I had bee going into boot order for hours on end. Made a saved document of your procedure. Thanks bunches on top of more bunches! The last boot order after I left was:
1. HD
2. Optical Drive
3. LAN
5 then bunch of nothings

How do you suggest I check to see if the cd-dvd is recognized by windows? See nothing in task manager, windows start glob list or notification bar nor icon links

First, disable auto-run as I indicated in prior post. Insert CD in drive, click computer, green bar should fill in left to right and title of CD should appear in the DVD-RW drive area.

If nothing appears, and you click on the drive and file contents doesn't open, your disk is most likely damaged. Next, I'd give ImgBurn disk verification a go and you will most likely get a read error or similar error code.

If so, Then you have to try the recovery program Britec uses in his video. As he clearly states in the video, it doesn't always work. Be nice if someone you know has a Win7x64 ISO or installation disk! You want to choose all the files/folders, etc. on the disk to recover.

Done for the night been up studying for my CompTIA tests, etc. since 5:45 am.

Infinite Loop during install, but not like others I have read
Howdy, I tried to search through the forums before posting. I've seen similar situations, but not the same as mine. Fortunately, I don't need anything on the HDD, so would be fine with wiping the HDD completely if I could only figure out how. Here's the situation. I had upgraded from W7...
